Florida may have found a pass rusher to fill the void left by the early departure of defensive end/outside linebacker Jachai Polite.

Actually, he has found the Gators.

Former Louisville defensive end/outside linebacker Jonathan Greenard announced on Twitter on Wednesday night that he is enrolling in classes at UF on Thursday as a graduate transfer. He will participate in spring drills and will be eligible this fall.

Greenard has a connection at UF — defensive coordinator Todd Grantham, whom he played for at Louisville in 2016.

Greenard, who is from Hiram, Ga., sat out the 2018 season after injuring his wrist in Louisville’s opener. He had been voted a team captain for the season.

In 2017, Greenard led the Cardinals in tackles for losses with 15.5. He also recorded seven sacks.
